Ta-Da!!! The quilt top is finished. This is Jingle Bell Square.
If you missed the pattern, it is a Bonnie Hunter pattern found in Quiltmaker magazine. You can find it here as a digital pattern for purchase.
I knew right away I would make it once I saw it.
At first I wasn’t a big fan of the large varieties of greens. I tend to be a little picky with greens…I didn’t like the wide range from bright to olive green to deeper hunter greens. The white sashing was a needed design feature as it helped break the greens up from being side by side.
I had to test it out on my bed to see how it would looks..I think it’s going to be great once it’s truly finished and once it’s Christmas.
I never really expected this to be the quilt top I was going to finish as Christmas is so far away, but I’ll take a finish whenever and where ever I can find one. I’ll always remember this quilt as the one I sewed to get me through my nasty February 2016 cold. It’s been great medicine!!
I’m off to go piece the backing together and then I’m hanging in the rack of quilts to be quilted.
